The Arthur W. Page Center for Integrity in Public Communication demonstrates its commitment to enhancing integrity and ethics in public communication by welcoming two new advisory committee members, Margery Kraus and Patrick Parsons.

Kraus, founder of the advocacy firm APCO Worldwide, and Parsons, Emeritus Professor of Communications, bring a rich array of experiences in global communication leadership and academia. Praised for their experience, the committee shares their excitement for the valuable prospects these two industry veterans will offer.

Since founding APCO in 1984, Kraus has remarkably expanded the Washington D.C.-based company with her expertise in strategic consultancy. Her ability to navigate challenging scenarios and use a thorough approach in market entry plans has sustained profitable ventures and amplified the company’s reputation in the consulting sector.

Kraus’ leadership indeed led APCO to secure globally-recognized status as a privately-owned consultancy firm with predominantly female ownership. Furthermore, her strategic decisions have enriched the company’s resilience, allowing it to withstand economic downturns and maintain its competitive edge.

To add to her many accolades, Kraus has been honored with prestigious awards like the Multicultural Media & Correspondents Association Lifetime Achievement Award and the IWEC Foundation Award, among others.

Patrick Parsons, on the other hand, has spent 37 years in academia, contributing significantly to journalism and telecommunications ethics. As the Director of an Ethical Leadership Program, he has authored several literature pieces illuminating the evolution of media ethics.
